About Lesson

A wheel is a circular component that rotates around an axle, allowing the vehicle to move forward. It is typically made up of several parts, including:

  1. Rim: This is the outer edge of the wheel that holds the tire in place. It is typically made of steel or aluminum and can vary in design and size.

  2. Hub: This is the central part of the wheel that attaches to the axle. It contains the wheel bearings, which allow the wheel to rotate smoothly around the axle.

  3. Spokes: These are the rods that connect the rim to the hub. They provide support and structural strength to the wheel and can also affect its appearance.

  4. Nipples: These are the small threaded inserts that connect the spokes to the rim. They allow for adjustment of the spoke tension and help to keep the wheel true.

  5. Valve stem: This is the component that allows air to be added or removed from the tire. It is typically made of rubber or metal and can be either a Schrader or Presta type.

  6. Lug nuts or bolts: These are the fasteners that attach the wheel to the vehicle’s hub. They come in various sizes and designs depending on the vehicle and wheel type.

Proper maintenance of the wheel and its parts is important for safe and efficient operation of the vehicle. Regular inspection and replacement of worn or damaged components can help to prevent problems and ensure a smooth and safe ride.
